Reviewed by H. McNicol, June 2018

I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You takes the reader through Cammie Morgan’s sophmore year at Gallagher Academy. Gallagher Academy isn’t the normal all girls boarding school. It’s a school for spies. In this book the reader meets Bex and Liz, Cammie’s best friends and roommates, as well as many other Gallagher girls. The book starts with a twist as an unexpected person has taken the position of teaching Covert Operations. An open seat at the first meal leaves the girls puzzled. This confusion only rises as a young male teacher enters the room. The reader soon learns that this man, Joe Solomon. All sophomores will have to participate in his class. The everyday life at Gallagher Academy begins to run smoothly as an unexpected soon brings chaos with a sudden code red. This new visitor brings light to Cammie’s life as she meets a boy during her first covert operations field test. You’ll have to read the book yourself to find out how Cammie deals with the struggle of dating a normal boy while attending a not so normal school.

I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You is Written for a teenage audience, but could appeal to those slightly younger as well. This book is like a toned down James Bond movie. It’s still as action packed as one would expect from a Bond movie, but more appropriate for younger audiences. I highly recommend taking a dive into Ally Carter’s wonderful world of the Gallagher Girls.
